The best part of this annual bee is to see the displays of beautiful quilts, some very old. Our congregation was in charge of decorating the gym this year:
I'm simply amazed at work that went into the hand made quilts before rulers, rotary cutters, and sewing machines. Though the finished products are the same, quilting surely is different from what it was 80 - 100 years ago.
After the donated quilts were logged in, they were hung over the pews.
